Monthly changes
In May 2010 compared with April 2010, new orders for capital goods rose by 5.3% in the euro area and by 4.7% in
the EU27. Non-durable consumer goods increased by 4.0% and 4.5% respectively. Durable consumer goods
gained 2.9% in the euro area and 1.1% in the EU27. Intermediate goods grew by 1.4% and 2.3% respectively.
Among the Member States for which data are available, total manufacturing working on orders rose in fourteen and
fell in seven. The highest increases were registered in Denmark (+13.4%), Estonia (+12.1%) and the Czech
Republic (+7.5%) and the largest decreases in Greece and the Netherlands (both -6.1%) and the United
Kingdom (-2.8%).



Annual changes
In May 2010 compared with May 2009, new orders for intermediate goods rose by 30.2% in the euro area and by
30.1% in the EU27. Capital goods increased by 20.7% and 16.1% respectively. Durable consumer goods gained
13.1% in the euro area and 16.5% in the EU27. Non-durable consumer goods grew by 8.2% and 6.4%
respectively.
Among the Member States for which data are available, total manufacturing working on orders rose in twenty and
fell only in Denmark and Greece (both -1.0%). The highest increases were registered in Latvia (+69.0%), Estonia
(+44.1%), Hungary (+40.6%) and Finland (+40.5%).


1. The euro area (EA16) includes Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Malta, the
   Netherlands, Austria, Portugal, Slovenia, Slovakia and Finland.
   The EU27 includes Belgium (BE), Bulgaria (BG), the Czech Republic (CZ), Denmark (DK), Germany (DE), Estonia (EE),
   Ireland (IE), Greece (EL), Spain (ES), France (FR), Italy (IT), Cyprus (CY), Latvia (LV), Lithuania (LT), Luxembourg (LU),
   Hungary (HU), Malta (MT), the Netherlands (NL), Austria (AT), Poland (PL), Portugal (PT), Romania (RO), Slovenia (SI),
   Slovakia (SK), Finland (FI), Sweden (SE) and the United Kingdom (UK).
2. The new orders index measures the value of future deliveries of products and services (which are directly linked to these
   products) to be provided by a producer to a third party on the domestic and non-domestic market. The total manufacturing
   aggregate includes only those NACE levels required by the STS Regulation to be supplied by the Member States (NACE 13,
   14, 17, 20, 21, 24 to 30) and is referred to as “total manufacturing working on orders”. The euro area and EU aggregates
   normally do not include Member States for which no data is available.
   The seasonally adjusted euro area and EU series are calculated by aggregating the unadjusted series from individual
   Member States and performing an adjustment for seasonal effects on these series. Therefore the seasonally adjusted
   figures for the European aggregates are based directly on the unadjusted series coming from the Member States and not on
   an aggregation of the seasonally adjusted indices from the Member States. The euro area and EU seasonally adjusted
   growth rates might differ from the weighted growth rates of the individual Member States. This procedure also implies that
   the aggregation of the overall figures is not based on the published details.
3. Data of previous months have been revised compared to those issued in the News Release 92/2010 of 24 June 2010. The
   monthly growth rates for April 2010 have been revised from +0.9% to +0.6% for the euro area and from -0.2% to +0.3% for
   the EU27. The annual growth rates have been revised from +22.1% to +21.9% for the euro area and from +21.8% to +21.1%
   for the EU27.
4. New orders for heavy transport equipment (NACE 30, which includes ships, railway and aerospace equipment) tend to be
   very volatile with a limited immediate impact on production. The aggregate "Manufacturing working on orders excluding
   heavy transport equipment" is less erratic. The share of heavy transport equipment in total manufacturing working on orders
   is 2.9% for the euro area and 3.0% for the EU.
5. Data for Ireland is working day adjusted.
